Is Mathematics Beautiful? Second part: Fractals

Tue 14 October 2008

"Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty -- a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show." - Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), The Study of Mathematics

A few days ago I posted some nice surfaces, a beauty of mathematics. Here I would like to post some interesting fractals.
